Mailchimp is a leading marketing platform for small business. We empower millions of customers around the world to build their brands & grow their companies with a suite of marketing automation, multichannel campaign, CRM, & analytics tools.

Were looking for an engineer with expertise in front-end development to join our team & help us build out the future of the front-end at Mailchimp. You can expect to work collaboratively on a team with designers, analysts, researchers, & other engineers to build great, friendly experiences for our customers.

Our ideal candidate has a strong understanding of user experience design, deep & applied knowledge of front-end fundamentals (HTML, CSS, JS/ES), a nuanced understanding of browser behavior & interactions, & is at least lightly conversant in backend development. Were in the midst of a large-scale adoption of React, so a willingness to work with complex interfaces & an appreciation for building clean components for them is a plus.

At Mailchimp, we value learning, collaboration & clarity. Youll find success here if you enjoy writing code, but you're aware that your job isn't only about shipping: you are a welcoming contributor who knows how to communicate with your team in order to provide great software. You've broken production environmentsand then buckled down, fixed them & maybe you held a blameless post-mortem about it!

Were excited to be adding to our teams in our Mailchimp Oakland office. This is an opportunity to contribute to forming a strong culture in a growing satellite office. You should be comfortable with distributed teams (as youll work with many folks in other locations), & also excited about building a strong, inclusive environment for everyone who joins after you.

What youll do:

  • Set technical direction for & own the design & implementation of the overall front-end system architecture & infrastructure.
  • Write & maintain clean, maintainable, & well-tested code for the future (and present) of Mailchimps front-end
  • Share your knowledge with teammates through code review, office hours, Tech Talks, & other avenues
  • Empower team members - including other developers as well as Technical Support & QA - through technical mentoring, contributions to the teams documentation libraries, & providing automation for manual tasks where appropriate.
  • Define & adhere to internal coding standards, development processes, & design best practices.
  • Ensure quality by performing thorough testing & leveraging peer reviews for your work & the work of cross functional teams.
  • Help scope, estimate, & prioritize work.
  • Work with design & engineering team members to build features from concept through implementation

We'd love to hear from you if:

  • You have experience in a software development environment, preferably building & maintaining distributed applications professionally.
  • You have depth of experience in at least one modern front-end framework & can speak to its benefits (React, Vue, AngularJS, etc.)
  • You have mild experience in backend development (such as PHP, Python, etc)enough that you can smoothly navigate the workings of a web application even if backend development is not your focus
  • You have experience driving technical projects, prioritizing work, identifying dependencies, facilitating technical decision & team discussions.
  • Youre comfortable collaborating closely with product managers & designers, providing estimates or product ideas that will influence your teams roadmap
  • Youre a thoughtful communicator - this team is partially distributed so effective written communication is key
  • You embrace & demonstrate our values: humility, creativity, & independence

Pluses, but not requirements, include:

  • Experience & interest in the React ecosystem
  • You enjoy analysis & using data to inform decision-making
  • Experience & interest in accessibility
  • An appreciation for improving web performance
  • Experience with front-end testing patterns

If you are excited about the role, even if these pluses dont match your experience, you are encouraged to apply!
